Hou Astros vs Pit Pirates
Even if it s a full soccer season , we ll continue our journey between the bookmakers with a new free tip from the passionate MLB !
In today s game we have two outsiders from the NL Central who begin a three-game series at Minute Maid Park. I think, all in this series will be decided in pitching stuff. So , Hou Astros vs Pit Pirates
Astros’ starting pitcher Roy Oswalt (14-7, 3.41 ERA) is the best one in his team. Besides, he is 11-5 with a 2.62 ERA lifetime versus Pittsburgh, winning his last five (!) decisions in a seven-start span since losing to the Pirates on April 25, 2005. He is 6-2 at home against them and has given up just one run in each of his last three starts at Minute Maid Park while winning two. Then, Oswalt is 39-13 against the money line in home games over the last 3 seasons!
For Pirates Ian Snell (9-12, 4.00 ERA) makes his third start at Minute Maid Park this season in a bid for a first win. He is 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA in three starts and four career outings at Minute Maid Park and 2-3 lifetime against the Astros. His form is not so good in last matches (for example, four runs and seven hits in seven innings of a 5-1 defeat to the Chicago Cubs on Saturday).
So, I think, Oswalt will stifl Pirates’ offence, and Astros’ batters can collect 3-4 runs agst Snell.
